Soaking up the sun

September 3, 2010

Since the boyf started work this week, we decided to enjoy his last day of freedom at the beach. He used to be a national champion swimmer or something, I don’t know, so he kept making me play stupid diving games or teaching me different strokes and what not. Clearly him and I have different ideas about beach ‘fun’.  I like floating around in the water, chilling and getting my tan on, NOT having gallons of salt water shoved up my nose and burning eyes. Anyway, it was still a fun and relaxing day and the boyf is so jealous of my new tan muahaha!

I didn’t have a swim suit but luckily enough, BHS has a major sale for plus size swim suits. This one is a size 14 and I was aiming for a vintage look but I don’t think it worked out so well. Screw it though, you’re supposed to be messy and wet at the beach not perfect looking.





I think the last time I wore a bikini, I was 3 yrs old? But I didn’t want to be a chubby girl in a t shirt feeling self conscious and sad about the other girls around in their swimsuits. Life is too freakin’ short.  This is the only body I’ll ever have, this is the only life I will ever live and I’m not going to stop myself from enjoying it because other people think I’m ugly. Besides, I wasn’t the only plus size girl at the beach, there were women of all ages and sizes. So just wear whatever you want ladies, fuck everyone else- IT’S YOUR LIFE. And there are more important things in this life than looking ‘perfect’ in a swimsuit.

  • Looking like a beautiful pin up my dear! That's so funny about him trying to teach you to do all sorts of swimming strokes. It kind of reminded me of when we were younger… my older cousins were always trying to do that to us… and even when we ended up on the swim team, everyone always wanted to do races and blah blah blah and I'm like "can I just float around and get a tan, please?"

  • SO cute! Love the polka dots! I finally bought a new bathing suit this summer and also got a black and white polka dots one piece. Sadly I was not brave enough to show a pic. So proud and inspired by you!!

  • You are gorgeous!!!!

  • Hello Beautiful!! you look lovely! love this bikini on you. and thanks for the link love.
    You got a beautiful body girl!

  • You look awesome. I love that retro bathing suit.

  • I love the suit, you look really beautiful!

  • Well done Weesha, you took a big step by wearing a bikini to a beach for us plus sized girls! I know it sounds silly, but I think when we wear what "NORMAL OMG" people wear that we prove that we are, in fact, normal people. Sure we have a bit more fat on us, but so what? You've proved to everyone who saw you on that day that plus sized girls can look absolutely beautiful and very sexy wearing bikinis.
    Ps. You look FAB.
